"in the arena" starts now. >>> good evening. i'm eliot spitzer. here with me is edie hill. what do you have tonight? >> we're watching what's happening in japan and the middle east. turmoil there. the question is japan is whether they stick with nuclear energy or turn to oil. how it impacts what you pay for gas, food and anything else you will purchase for six months out. we'll discuss it. >> fascinating and important issue. sounds great. tonight we start with breaking news from libya. anti-aircraft guns continue to light up the skies over tripoli. coalition forces launched another round of air strikes. day three of the military engagement in libya and the question is -- now what? after missiles halted ghadafi's forces. he controls much of the country. the multi day barrage leaves a nation divided. the shaded area covers the no-fly zone territory enforced by the coalition. air strikes concentrated mostly

where could the first strikes come from? perhaps u.s. naval vessels. cruise missiles could be involved. there are nato air bases that could be used in any no-fly zone. one immediate concern, the libyan military, while not powerful, has a stro anti-aircraft surface-to-air missile system here. watch for strikes first in the days ahead. we'll be on top this tomorrow as well as the japan crisis. "in the arena" right now. >>> good evening, i'm eliot spitzer, welcome to the program. will cain and gloria borger join plea and we'll go to anderson cooper in a moment on the story of the most desperate methods to stem the radiation from the crippled nuclear reactors. photos taken from military aircraft by people who surely risked their lives show just how grave the damage is. look at that and imagine how difficult it will be to save the crippled facility. but first, breaking news just coming in. there could, emphasis could, be an attack on libya very soon, indeed within hours. the battle for benghazi, the battle for libya may well be about to begin. this after the united nations passe

can call the obama doctrine, when to deploy u.s. military forces around the world. he laid out the case when it's in the united states interest to use military force, when it's in the united states interest not to use military force, and this is the example that he gave, this is going to be the precedent, what the united states has done now in libya, presumably given the explosion of unrest that's happening right now throughout north africa and the middle east, if there are similar circumstances that develop in other countries, whether in syria, or yemen and bahrain, and the potential of mass slaughter of civilians is there, the pressure will be on this president to go ahead and authorize what the president authorized in libya. and the greatest potential for the u.s., if there's a revolution, and if there's serious unrest in iran and the people are standing up against mahmoud ahmadinejad and the i ayatollahs take similar action as far as iran is concerned. i think we can call this the obama doctrine. >> and he also made it clear what the limits of this mission is as he sees it

that horrific event occurred. you'll tell us about that later in the show. >> i was at "newsweek" at the time, eliot, it's really something you never ever forget. >> i can imagine. can't wait to hear that but first we start with breaking news and hear truth telling about what's going on at the fukushima power plant. it's not coming from japan but coming from the usa. jeg bri gregory jaczko delivered the bad news. >> what we believe at this time is that there has been a hydrogen explosion in this unit due to an uncovering in the fuel in the fuel pool. we believe that secondary containment has been destroyed and there is no water in the spent fuel pool age we believe that radiation levels are extremely high which could possibly impact the ability to take corrective measures. >> no water in the spent fuel pool. that means that radioactive fuel rods are now exposed without party, the fuel rods could overheat and catch fire, a fire that would spread radioactivity over a wide area and this is the nightmare scenario we've been telling you about for days now, another crucial point from jaczko. any am

. a great interview. that's all for us tonight. >>> good evening, i'm eliot spitzer. welcome to the program, our regular, will cain is, here. what have you got tonight? >> the protests across the middle east is spread into syria. with the long and violent history of dealing with protesters, we'll talk about what to expect in the coming weeks. >> it is going to be ugly and violent. an extraordinary time in the middle east. >>> we begin with libya where the critical question is this -- correct checkmate or stalemate? how and why the coalition dominates the skies and how it's been employed against libyan forces. you're watching a british royal tornado bomber targeting and destroying a libyan battle tank. in a split second the tank turns into a ball of fire. this is why the obama administration hoped this campaign would be a quick checkmate and the fall of gadhafi. yet almost a week into the libyan campaign, it's increasingly looking like a drawn-out stalemate. gadhafi still shows no signs of relenting in his brutal war against his people, ignoring all calls for a cease fear. in ajdabiya and mi

to ybring that tu shortly. first in this case robertson joins us. my question -- nic robertson joins us. my question -- are gadhafi's troops showing any signs of cracking under the four-day assault that we have waged against them? >> reporter: from what we're seeing here in tripoli, the answer seems to be no. from the reports that we get from coalition and from opposition forces in misurata, the answer also appears to be no. from the town in the east of the country where there's been reports of fighting in the city between rebels and the government, the answer there seems to be no. coalition commanders had yesterday said they thought they were having some impact in persuading gadhafi's forces it wasn't worth fighting. we talked to naval officers today at a naval facility that was targeted overnight last night. they also told us they wouldn't -- they wouldn't be about to back down. >> what i gather from what you're saying is that even though we have established this no-fly zone that is the centerpiece of our military strategy, it has not been effective in preventing either the continued assa

in the grip of moammar gadhafi and all his craziness for the past 42 years. >> john lee -- you use some marvelous phrases and say they are gripped by bravado and defiance. it seems there is an emotional energy there driving them forward but none of the skills that you need to actually wage a war. it sounds -- the way you just describe them as a bunch of professional individuals for whom war is nothing more than what you learn by watching it on tv, do they have the training to actually present a front, a military front to oppose gadhafi at this point? >> reporter: no, they don't. what happens is when gadhafi's forces attack, you know, hugely in lightning blitzkrieg frontal attacks with missiles and before the no-fly zone with aviation -- that is is jet fighters but now still with katyusha rockets that come in rapid-fire and kill a lot of people, they move in fast convoys and begin shooting immediately, these young -- mostly young men who are at the front and who have gone out in the spirit of revolutionary bravado trying to rid the country of the dictator and really don't know how to fig

of the city was targeted. witnesses have told us they've seen columns of smoke and fires at the -- at the military base in the east of the city here. that military air field. and in the west of the city, too, we've heard witnesses describe columns of smoke rising from there, as well, after we heard explosions from here. not as much anti-aircraft fire as weigh we heard a few nights ago. that seems to be a change on the ground. not so much anti-aircraft fire when the explosions happened. >> any sense that attacks on tripoli itself by the coalition forces are continuing and will be a continuous part of this escalating battle? >> reporter: it certainly seems to be. why? because at the moment the government forces here are facing off with rebels in to rata and in ajdabi communicate further down the line toward the front. we heard government officials telling us last night that their communications, in fact, are being degraded at the moment. and their ability to resupply those units in the field are being degraded here. some effect, it's having some effect in misurata but not a

that i use this metaphor. she said it's like the russian doll that's fit inside one another. the wooden dolls. so the outside doll is the building that contains the reactor. and then within that, there is a containment vessel. that is five, six more feet of concrete with reinforced steel that houses the reactor so that if there is a meltdown, partial or full, that that radioactivity does not escape out into the environment. so that is the doll inside the doll. and then the final doll is the reactor itself. it's inside this containment vessel. and the idea is if it runs into major problems, at least we have the containment vessel to keep everything inside from leaking outside into the environment. >> so -- >> so if -- >> go ahead, jim. >> yeah. if the containment vessel is breeched that, is to say if there are cracks in it, if there's other problems with it that somehow it's not whole but broken, then that means that the material inside the reactor is able to escape to the outside environment. and this reactor, by the way, is the reactor that was earlier reported today as having had expo

and joins us now. what's the latest? >> reporter: the latest is that that town which was under the control of the anti-gadhafi forces is now disputed so to speak. it's not clear who is in control. that was after a day of intense bombardment by government forces on the town. by air, by land, and this time for the first time, also by sea. we saw -- we were watching actually as those rounds were coming in. one of them hit very close to the hospital in town, which has now been evacuated. one also hit a mosque where people were inside. according to eyewitnesses, one of the people inside was killed. as a result of that bombardment, we saw the anti-gadhafi forces really hightailing it out of the area. there's a lot of concern that muammar gadhafi's in a sense taking advantage of perhaps these last few days before a no-fly zone is imposed to gain as much territory as possible. >> you know, ben, you describe a battle that sounds as though it's a complete mismatch. what is the relative state of the armalities between the gadhafi -- armaments between the gadhafi forces and opposition forces? is it a
